    Papal Visit May Have Reversed Censorship of Pro-Life Speaker

    (CNSNews.com) - Just before Pope Benedict XVI arrived in the United States Tuesday, a Catholic university in Minnesota that had previously blocked a pro-life speaker from appearing on campus reversed its position.

    The University of St. Thomas in St. Paul has previously hosted left-of-center activists who are hostile to church teachings, so conservative students questioned why the school would bar someone who endorses church teachings.

    Jason Mattera, a spokesman with the conservative Young America's Foundation (YAF), said the timing of the pope's visit may have prompted the school to change its mind.

    this Pope seems a lot more American friendly than the last one.
